Question about Cars & Trucks
Motor seized, tried WD 40, worked for about 10 minutes then started seizing up again, should I try oil, or should I replace. It still heats when the motor get working.

SOURCE: Blower motor starts and stops
It sounds to me like an 'intermittently open circuit', or in plain language, when some part of the heater's circuit heats up a connection somewhere in the circuit 'opens up' stopping the flow of electricity. Then (10 minutes later?) when the circuit cools again the connection 'closes' again until warm. I would trace all the wires in that circuit from the fuse box to the blower motor (including fuse box & fuse) and look for broken or cracked insulation; make sure all connections are tight; I'd certainly check the heater's 'setting' switch (off,high, low switch) on the dash. It could also be a fusible link. This is a piece of wire somewhere in the circuit that 'feels' different than the other wire, more 'rubbery' and not as stiff. It's actually a little thinner wire inside than the rest of the circuit made to burn cleanly through (acting as a type of fuse) rather than over heating the circuit itself The problem has to be in this circuit, and something that 'opens' when heated. Good luck!

the plastic panel pops off , if you had a trim removal tool it would be nice but it can be improvised , they are just tension clips , get some kind of lever behind the panel and give it a pop , once the plastic panel is off its pretty much self explanatory from there , a connector and couple small bolts , now the outside has nut under the w/w blade , a piece of the arm cover pops up to access the nut , remove w/w arm , then a grommet and under the grommet is a bigger nut that helps hold the motor onto the door/hatch , when reinstalling before you put the w/w arm back on run the wiper and make sure it shuts off and in the park position . should be a piece of cake .

SOURCE: Engine Control Unit(ECU)
The ECU is a Direct Link to the Onboard Computer. You may need to get the Computer Replaced or at Least have a Mechanic run a Diagnostics Check on it. The reason it is acting this way is Because you are just Clearing the Trouble Codes by removing the ECU for a while. It is still sending a Fatal Error after Driven for a While.

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn Ion -just replace
Does the key have a chip in it? If it does, read the resistance accross both sides of the key chip on the 20k scale, buy a 96 cent pack of resistors from Radio Shack, and solder together a set of them that equals near 2% variance of what the key reads,shrink wrap them, try to locate the wiring and solder this resistance set up in the wires, try to start.
Wiring diagram is needed to be sure of the colors and location of wires to be spliced.
I came accross a remedy of some who had a remote control start installed and they stated this eliminated their starting horrors.
When you turn the key to start does it crank or does it make any sort of a noise, like a clicking to the relay?
try tapping the solenoid with a long bar tried just about everything else.
